Parliament-Funkadelic?s Jerome ?Bigfoot? Brailey Gears Up for the Release of New Album With His New Group

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 16, 2012

Parliament-Funkadelic and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, Jerome ?Bigfoot? Brailey, has an innovative album coming out through Hoopla Media Group / LRT / INgrooves Fontana called "The Lovinator Experiment" with his new group Bigfoot & Bondz.

?Signing Jerome Bigfoot Brailey to our company with his Bigfoot & Bondz project is a monumental highlight for our company. I framed his signature on our company record contract, I mean really, does it get any bigger than this?? says Jonathan Hay (co-owner of Hoopla Media Group / Hoopla Worldwide and Jonathan Hay Publicity).

Jerome ?Bigfoot? Brailey is undoubtedly one of the giants of Funk music. Wherever you turn in P-Funk territory you are bound to trip over the infectious beats of Jerome ?Bigfoot? Brailey. Bigfoot will live forever in P-Funk lore, when Uncle Jam said he wanted you, Jerome answered the call and made his move from the outer regions of sanity to the inner sanctum of the Funk Overlord, George Clinton and helped the concept of Pure Funk-?or P-Funk?-became a reality, courtesy of "The Mothership Connection". It?s hard to imagine the sound of this momentous album without the fluid drumming of Jerome Brailey, who also co-wrote the track that epitomized the sound of Parliament?s "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)".

Throughout the seventies, Brailey was the predominant backbeat of George Clinton?s P-Funk organization, sharing the rhythm chores with such luminaries as Bootsy Collins on bass, Bernie Worrell on keyboards and guitar legends Eddie Hazel, Gary Shider, Mike Hampton and Glen Goins. Along the way, Brailey had contributed to some of P-Funk?s most successful and memorable moments, with seven Gold and Platinum records to prove it. Who hasn?t heard of "The Mothership Connection", "Clones Of Dr Funkenstein", "Funkentelechy Vs The Placebo Syndrome" or "One Nation Under A Groove"? As well as contributing to output of Parliament-Funkadelic, Jerome was also to be heard on albums by Fred Wesley & The Horny Horns and Bootsy?s Rubber Band.

When the Mothership crashed at the end of that decade, the pieces of it exploded into new Funk and the first group members to jump the Mothership were Jerome Brailey and Glen Goins. Jerome?s group Mutiny issued "Mutiny On The Mamaship" in 1979, followed in 1980 by "Funk Plus The One", which served up more fluid grooves and massive critical acclaim.

In 1990, he continued working with such highly-acclaimed artists as Herbie Hancock and Buddy Miles, as well as his Parliament-Funkadelic allies Bootsy Collins and Bernie Worrell. In 1992, the world witnessed the birth of G-Funk as pioneered by Dr. Dre on The Chronic (Death Row Records), which leaned heavily on the P-Funk groove and is widely considered to one the greatest hip-hop albums of all-time. Chad Kiser (co-founder of Hoopla) asks, ?Seriously, where would Dr. Dre be right now if it wasn?t for Parliament-Funkadelic?? Jonathan Hay interjected, ?Dr. Dre should release a special series of headphones for Jerome, and call them ?Beats by Bigfoot? cause a lot of the classic songs, rhythms and beats by Dre are heavily influenced from Bigfoot.?

In 1993, Black Arc Records released O.G. Funk, "Out Of The Dark" the brainchild of Billy ?Bass? Nelson, original Funkadelic Bass man, featuring Bigfoot. In 1995, collaborations between Bigfoot, Bootsy, Bernie Worrell and the late Eddie Hazel appeared on the Axiom Funk compilation, Funkcronomicon. That same year, Mutiny signed a single deal with Rad Records for the release of, "Sneakin Up Behind You" which saw the first collaboration with album cover art artist, the British based P-Funk cartoonist, Howard Priestley who has also created material for Rick (Horny Horns) Gardner, Mallia Franklin, Bootsy Collins, Ruth Copeland, and Garry Shider. Fast forward to now, and Howard Priestly is also doing the artwork for upcoming "The Lovinator Experiment" and he is being assisted by award-winning graphic artist, Sabrina Hale of Hoopla Media Group and Urbanista Graphix. They have come up with an extensive booklet of original artwork (in both physical and digital formats) that will giv e the P-Funk fans all across the world something to get really excited about. ?It sounds so clich
